Word 2007 doc link not opening in IE7 (Vista)

We use a website called EDLINE to manage school work and classes.  It allows uploading of all kinds of docs.  After I upload a Word 2007 docx doc, then click on the link to open it, IE7 requires me to "save" the document and does NOT offer the choice to open it right from the link.  However, when I use Firefox, the docx doc opens up right from the link.

Could there be a security setting in IE7 that doesn't like docx files??

Try it from this link

Hello ejcrist,

Add the website to the Trusted Sites list. From the Internet Options dialog, click on the ?Security? tab, then click on ?Trusted Sites?, and add the Edline website.  Then IE7 will allow you to open files from site.

Hope this helps!
